Swara Bhaskar starrer Bollywood movie Anaarkali Of Araah minted poor business on 13th day of its release. The film earned some thousand rupees on its second Wednesday in Indian cinema. The Hindi offering has been showcasing very dull performance in cinema halls and has been witnessing about 2 to 3 % occupancy in this week.
Kicking off its box office journey with 0.1 crore first day box office collection, the celluloid received steady response from audiences in first week. Reporting consistent occupancy in the theatres, the film grossed Rs 0.2 crore income in opening weekend. Experiencing a box office clash with Anushka Sharma starrer Phillauri since day 1, this Hindi drama minted very low collection at India’s box office.
The movie gained very low response from audiences in the second week. As Pawan Kalyan and Shruti Hasan starrer Tamil flick Katamarayudu had a good hold in Tamil Nadu and other south Indian regions, Swara Bhaskar’s movie didn’t perform well in the Tamil speaking states. Apart from the severe box office competition in south India regions, the film faced dull response in central Indian states also.
Directed by Avinash Das, the celluloid raked average response in Bihar as the film’s story revolves around a small town performer who hails from Bihar. The movie received positive response from audiences and mixed reviews from the critics as it was based on the female empowerment and narrated the story of a woman who fights against the molesters.
